Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

Hmm. Google Maps shows two Schlotzsky’s(es?) in the greater area… but they’re both permanently closed. 😒

Reality TV, but with cooperation and consensus. Having people build/do something collaboratively to greater and greater heights that none could accomplish on their own. With participants respecting each other and the process.

And no commercials.

This year in Seattle has been surprisingly warm and sunny. But the stereotypical weather seems to have arrived.

Brain: psst. Wake up.

I have a special level of disdain for people who get on the bus and stop to stand immediately in the doorway so everyone else has to squeeze past them in/out the door the the next stops. GET OUT OF THE WAY.

uspol, musings on due process 

reminder: if due process is revoked for one group -- illegal immigrants, for example -- it can be revoked for everyone. All the government has to do is say you're an illegal immigrant. You say, "but I'm not, and I can prove it" -- but prove it to who?? the government doesn't have to give you a chance to prove it, that's what revoking due process *means.*

But of course, most people who say it's okay to revoke illegal immigrants' due process are white. so.

Someone recommended Steven Universe and I half-heartedly started watching it, but now I think I love it?

Don’t make the mistake I did and just write it off as a cartoon for kids. Though, yes, some plot lines are predictable tropes, it’s still super cute and enjoyable.

airtable.com is the first company I was dealing with who actually offered to compensate me for the time I spent doing their take-home assignment. It was a $200 Amazon gift card!

Pet peeve: animated GIFs on slides in work presentations.

Also, they’re never as funny as people think.
